Planning dinner ideas for upcoming celebrations is one of my favorite things to do. It’s a topic I discuss with my husband months prior to the date.
However, for special occasions like his birthday or Father’s Day, I like to ask friends or rely on my Recipes for the Family board on Pinterest.
There are many options to choose from that can help you celebrate this special occasion. To narrow down on your choices, I’ve put together a roundup of recipe ideas for Father’s Day dinner your family will enjoy.
Each recipe has been broken down into different categories: grilled, air fryer, and Instant Pot.

We have our menu for Father’s Day but I’m saving this one for every day. So many amazing recipes.
Thanks, Heather. Always looking for new recipes to try myself!
There are some great ideas here. I know my husband won’t turn away anything grilled.
Same! My husband loves grilling. Me? Not so much.. unless it’s indoors! 🙂
These are all yummy recipes that my husband would love BBQ on Fathers Day. As long as I cook he would be happy.
Aw! That’s awesome, Amy. Love cooking for the family.
Oh dear! My husband is actually more the gourmand than I am (though we both love to cook) so usually he won’t let me make him something special on Father’s Day! Maybe I can share this list w/him for some new ideas, though – he is forever trying new recipes 🙂
My husband will be grilling this weekend. These recipes give some inspiration for the meal
I love these recipes. Not only for the Father’s Day. 🙂 I think I will choose some fun recipe that we can make it all together like tacos. It will make our dinner special!
This is such an amazing list for Father’s Day! They all look delicious!
We always grill out with family on fathers day and yes these are awesome ideas! So crazy that Fathers Day is almost here!
This is very timely and useful for the upcoming Father’s Day. I will look into what me and kids can make for hubby.
Thank you for sharing.
Oh yum! I love grilling and Father’s Day is the prefect day to do some more grilling! It is so easy and even more delicious!
